Out of boredom, I was looking for used coasters and stuff like that, and I happened to come across this

It looks like a Top Fun Looper is up for sale, and the photos are of Rainier Rush. Could Washington State Fair be trying to get rid of this infamous ride?

I hope Michigan's Adventure finally gets their new ride.

Send it to the scrap heap.

A steal at $375,000!

Doesn't look like it would be a pleasant ride, though.

^ For that price, I think you could buy almost all of Bowcraft's old rides.

Okay, okay, it's one of many hated coasters that I didn't find too terribly rough. But it's certainly not "good," either. I miss the Monster Mouse they had. (And Kersplash...but just a tiny bit.)

Heck yeah they do! Their rare ride collection used to be pretty stacked. Huss Jumping, a modern Rotor that dropped the floor surprisingly low and stuck you real good, sometimes a Rock-o-Plane...and, before my time, Lusse Auto Skooters and who knows what else. I didn't realize how lucky I was to visit a few times before some ride retirements made their collection much more generic.

I'm still waiting for Kersplash to open at Edaville. Originally it was a new for 2016. Then a new for 2017. Then a new for 2018. At this point, I don't expect it to open.
